Data recovered from the project "Historic Ireland's Build Environment and Road Network Inventory Access" (HIBERNIA), which had been a web enablement of two earlier inventories: the Dublin Environmental Inventory (DEI) and the Dublin Docklands area master plan inventory (DDAMP) (both undertaken by the School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering, University College Dublin). The combined inventories include historical, geographical, and architectural information collected from 1993 to 1995 for 1,280 of Dublin's buildings.

UCD News was an internal, informal publication for the staff and students of University College Dublin. It was published initially by the Information Officer and later by the Office of Public Affairs. The magazine's aim was to be an informal news magazine rather than an official publication - early issues state that the views expressed in were those of the editor and contributors and "did not necessarily reflect the views of the Governing Body, Academic Council, President or other officers of the College". Generally issues were published monthly with a summer, or graduate issue published over the summer months. A typical issue included: general news and notices from around the University; college club and society notices; sports news; correspondence; appointments and retirements. Profiles of individual Departments, Schools, or units were a regular feature as were official communications, such as reports from the Governing Body or addresses by the President at graduations. The summer issues in particular often contain an overview of developments, both physical and academic, within the University over the previous year as well as an interview with the President. Taken as a whole, this collection illustrates the physical growth of the Belfield campus, academic developments within the University, advancements in technology and work practices, and changes in the demographics of the student body, as well as documenting aspects of the wider higher education sector in Ireland.
Minor Harbours of Ireland, an Irish Research Council-funded project by UCD School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, examines the evolution of maritime engineering in small harbours in Ireland from the seventeenth century to the present. This collection records the construction and evolution of a selection of these minor harbours and includes short historical descriptions, onsite LiDAR scans, photographic site surveys, and exhibition posters for each harbour.
The Irish Poetry Reading Collection, which forms part of the Irish Poetry Reading Archive, is a central repository for readings by Irish poets, in both the English and the Irish language. This collection aims to capture and preserve the rich and diverse landscape of poetry in Ireland, and includes the voices of: established poets; emerging poets; performance poets; avant-garde poets; English and Irish language poets; and Irish diaspora poets. Many of the readings are accompanied by handwritten or typed presentation copies of the poem, created by the poet especially for the reading.
